So how long before the water park will close up. I am starting to wonder if the water park has been shopped around already. Last week there was an article in the news about a group wanting to build a water park south of Cleveland more toward Akron. Maybe they have a buyer for the water park and figure might as well sell every pit of land you can.
Other wise seems like park suicide if you sell off all the extra land and make the park limited in size.
Even though WWK is listed as unavailable, talks to sell the land will surely result on offers being made and thaat will give Cedar Fair an idea of what they can get for it when the time comes. I said it before and I'll say it again- within five years, WWK will be done as well. CF has no future plans for that place other than to milk it for a few years in an attempt to get back some of what they wasted on it.
I think CF keeping a presence with the water park is a really bad move. It can't possibly have a positive effect on the price they'll get; it should drive the price per acre down. No one with any sense would want to put in residential around the lake with WWK sitting along the shore.
CF should make the smart business decision and put the entire parcel up for sale.
Just dome the whole damn thing! Enclose the waterside, all the available land and build a community like Logans Run. At least that would have a Carousel! ;) *** Edited 11/20/2007 6:14:02 PM UTC by FLYINGSCOOTER***
Was it always that way? Only a small park of Geauga Lake sits in the other county but the olf Sea World site is pretty much divided in half by the county line. Whatever, that's ridiculous. You'd think that at some point, one county would have claimed one park while the other country claimed the other. I wonder if that's going to make any sale of the land that much more difficult and tedious? We're talking about major acreage in two counties.
It doesn't really say if it's being subdivided or sold as a full unit. But, the way they have it labeled is quite strange. They've put the portion of Sea World with the Geauga Lake land on the other side of the lake. Maybe that's just the graphics on the listing, but it is still strange.
